Bee Gees Greatest + dance competition being held to celebrate!

Bee Gees Greatest

The Bee Gees were already established hit makers in the U.S. and the U.K. when the group became an unstoppable musical force in 1975. In four short years, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb rose to international superstardom as they recorded a string of worldwide hits, sold 180 million records worldwide and helped define an era with the Grammy-winning Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. The Brothers Gibb capped their amazing run in 1979 with the multi-platinum Bee Gees Greatest, a double album spotlighting the group's meteoric run of R&B dance hits between 1975 and 1979.

Out-of-print for five years, and in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Saturday Night Fever, Reprise will reissue the monumental collection as a two-CD deluxe edition that contains two previously unreleased tracks - "Warm Ride" and an extended version of "Stayin' Alive," originally a 12" promo vinyl-along with four contemporary dance remixes of classic Bee Gees songs by some of today's hot club DJs. Bee Gees Greatest will be available on October 1st, 2007 at all physical retail outlets and in digital form.

The double-disc contains selections from three of the Bee Gees' studio albums: 1975's Main Course (certified gold), 1976's Children Of The World (certified platinum) and 1979's Spirits Having Flown (certified platinum), as well as the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack (1977), which has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide.

The collection assembles essential listening including "How Deep Is Your Love," "Stayin' Alive," "Night Fever," "Too Much Heaven," "Tragedy" and "Love You Inside Out" - a run of six consecutive #1 hits within a year and a half. Bee Gees Greatest also features the #1 hits "You Should Be Dancing" and "Jive Talkin'" plus the Top 10 singles "Nights On Broadway" and "Love So Right."

Also, to celebrate this massive release there will be a Saturday Night Fever launch event on the 27th September 2007 - Venue TBC. There will be a dance competition too!

This year also marks the 30th anniversary of Saturday Night Fever, the film that launched the career of John Travolta, the dance craze of the late '70s, and the massive resurgence of the Bee Gees - one of the greatest R&B acts of the '60s and early '70s. The arrival of the CD coincides with Paramount Home Entertainment's October 1st release of the SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER Special Collector's Edition DVD, which features new interviews with cast members and Barry and Robin Gibb, as well as all-new featurettes on the making of the film and its cultural impact. Reprise and Paramount Home Entertainment are planning a massive celebration to mark the anniversary of this landmark film.
